Dyslexic Teenager at School

My son has dyslexia, and he was struggling at school. The latest assessment shows that he has got problems with memory and verbal communication. But, he is good at Mathematics.

He was attending online classes for the past year due to the COVID outbreak. Now, their school has reopened, and the teachers have asked them to get back to school next month. I was able to pay attention to his studies while he was at home, which has helped him a lot. I am not sure whether he will get the same care at school.

The teachers said that the school had upgraded their student health management system, which is very beneficial to physically weak students. They said that both parents and teachers could track students' health status via this s/w and take appropriate actions when needed.

I like to know how you people are dealing with this. Does your school provide extra support to dyslexic students?

    The target date for re-opening schools is March 8th but a final decision won't be made on that until 22nd Feb. Although I understand that schools in Wales might return after this weeks holiday.

    Hi 

    I would suggest you speak to school to ask what support they offer in his situation 

    They must have other students or have come across this in the past

    Welcome to the community @terile :) I hope you're well. 

    Was he receiving any extra support from the school before lockdown? Does he have an EHCP?

    He do not have EHCP. Yes, he received some sort of extra care from the school.

    Apologies, I just read that EHCPs aren't usually given to students with dyslexia only, so that was my mistake @Terile

    I'm glad to hear that the school have updated their student health management system. Are all of his teachers aware of his dyslexia? Do you have a good relationship with the SENCo?

    Hi @Edward627 :) Welcome to the community.

    I've removed the link from your comment, as it appeared to be advertising a paid-for service. This breaches our House Rules
